Santa Cruz Island Vacations
The national capital Quito is situated 820 miles (1320 kilometers) east of Santa Cruz Island, while Lake Atitlan lies 1050 miles (1690 kilometers) to the north.
Escape the bustling streets by planning a trip to the local nature preserves, such as Galapagos National Park and Twin Craters. These two biological havens are delightful places for families to get out and enjoy the local flora and fauna.
Some of the best coastal destinations this region are Tortuga Bay Beach and El Garrapatero Beach. Listen to the sounds of the birds, enjoy the breeze and then walk along the shoreline. You'll feel relaxed and refreshed.
The Charles Darwin Research Station is the perfect oasis for discerning families in Santa Cruz Island. Take advantage of the quiet atmosphere, ask the staff about the guided tours, grab something from the gift shop or just enjoy the well-curated displays.
Find a little peace in Las Grietas, one of the places where families can spend time outdoors. Admire the trees and flowers, read a book, or just soak up the sunshine. This park will suit whatever mood you're in.
